This came out quite awhile ago, but some songs are timeless — give them to us weeks, months, years later and they still resonate, and maybe even more so. Beirut, an indie group that combines folk, Eastern European influences, and orchestral-rock, is simply amazing at what they do and they only grow better with each and every release they put out (there are too many to count). The somber, yet beautiful “Postcards From Italy” is off their debut album Gulag Orkestar, which came out in 2006. Here, eclectic powerhouse Florence + The Machine tackle it rather impressively. Though the cover is far more sparse than the original, it still holds onto the deep-seated sentimentality, while also adding incredible vocal work. Download it below!
